'Mary Help of Christians' was not the first invocation that Don Bosco chose for his apostolate. In the initial stages of the oratory the invocation, 'Immaculate Help' was quite popular. Perhaps it has much to do with the declaration of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception in 1854. For some time Mother Mary was invoked under the title 'Immaculate Help of Christians'. However, in the course of time, the title 'Mary Help of Christians' gained popularity and stuck.
